Our old lab technician got married! It was a low-key wedding; the reception was in their back garden. But they live in a idyllic cottage (which is a converted stable) on a dreamy estate and it was lovely. The weather was collaborating too; it was the nicest autumn day one could wish. I biked to the venue (it wasn't far) and was warmly welcomed by groom, bride, relatives and who not. It was great! There was a pig on a spit (reared lovingly by another colleague) and witty best man speeches, and a welling-up groom. I think all went perfectly! I hope they'll have a spiffing and lasting marriage!
This blog started as a tool to keep my Dutch friends informed on my whereabouts when I moved abroad. It quickly also became an external memory for my own use. It largely failed as a stage for discussions on whatever is worth discussing. And it has become a way of sharing my scientific knowledge with a lay audience. And who knows, it could become even more! And whatever it is you are looking for among all this: welcome.
